Colin Munro is a New Zealand international cricket. He is a first player to make three T20 International centuries. The tough hitting batsman would have wished for a better start after breaking into Auckland’s T20 side in 2010-11. A few ducks were not precisely the kind of beginning he required in his first two matches, but a good fifty followed, boosting his opportunities. Munro played an enormous part that season in the HRV Cup triumph of Auckland. He was a member of Auckland Aces in the T20 Champions League held in India later that year. In 2012, for the New Zealand series against South Africa, he was called up to the T20I team.

Scoring in just his second ODI against South Africa for half a century, Munro has always been regarded in national circles as a disastrous middle-order batsman. He got a test cap on the same trip but was unable to take full advantage of the chance, being defeated in the first innings for a golden duck and contributing with just 15 during the defeat of New Zealand innings. Munro succeeded in matching the reputation he had constructed for himself during Bangladesh’s rather forgettable New Zealand tour, later that year with an 85 in the final ODI and a match-winning whirlwind 73 off just 39 shots in New Zealand’s one-off T20I tour win.
